Esh Group Eagles Newcastle have parted company with rookie guard Ahmad Thomas ahead of this weekend’s trip to Glasgow Rocks.

The 23-year-old started last week’s BBL opener against Cheshire Phoenix and came away with nine points and six rebounds on his Sport Central debut.

But player-coach Fabulous Flournoy and his coaching staff have decided there is a need to change the balance of the squad.

“Ahmad is a talented player and a genuine prospect,” said Newcastle’s play caller.

“The decision to change hasn’t been taken lightly as Ahmad is a true professional. Everyone involved with the Eagles’ organisation would like to thank him for his effort and contribution. We wish Ahmad every success in the future.”
